We created a sustainability tool for BOM Capital
The mission of the Brabant Development Agency (BOM) is to create, improve, maintain and develop the industrial and economic structure in the Dutch province of Brabant by offering a range of professional services. BOM Capital, one of the units of the BOM, finances innovative and financially healthy companies by providing equity capital and subordinated loans. How can we effectively integrate our sustainability ambitions in the tool box of our investment officers? This was the question we were asked by BOM Capital.
Sustainability is part of the strategic focus of the organisation. Yet, BOM Capital wanted to provide investment officers a tool that would help them identify sustainability risks and opportunities and facilitate the dialogue with (portfolio) companies. We developed that tool in close cooperation with a team of investment managers.
The tool helps BOM to integrate sustainability into the investment process by prioritising issues and connecting sustainability to sector focus areas.
